by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Yankees ink Andrew Bailey on minor-league deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Yankees added former Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey on a minor-league contract Saturday, as first reported by ESPN.com. Bailey, who is recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, is unlikely to be ready to pitch until May, according to CSNNE.com.

If Bailey makes it to the majors, he will make a pro-rated salary of $1.975 million. The contract also includes an option and buyout for the 2015 season, bringing the potential value to $2.5 million.  

Bailey has been mostly good in his major-league career, with the exception of one poor season in 2012. Prior to his injury, he had a 3.77 ERA with 39 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings out of the Red Sox bullpen a year ago. 


A majority of MLB teams interested in Andrew Bailey


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/8/2013) According to MLBTradeRumors, more than 15 teams have made inquiries on free agent reliever Andrew Bailey. The 29-year-old was non-tendered by the Red Sox last week.

Bailey is recovering from shoulder surgery and is expected to be ready to return by mid-May.


Red Sox non-tender former closer Andrew Bailey


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) The Red Sox opted not to tender a contract to reliever Andrew Bailey Monday, ahead of the midnight deadline, according to the WEEI.com. That is contrary to a report Sunday that indicated the team was willing to take Bailey to arbitration for 2014.

Bailey underwent shoulder surgery last season in July, finishing the season with a 3.77 ERA in 28 2/3 innings. Bailey was paid $4.1 million, but the Red Sox likely balked at a potential raise in light of his injury concerns.   


Red Sox to tender Andrew Bailey after all


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/1/2013) The New York Post reports that the Red Sox intend to tender a contract to arbitration-eligible reliever Andrew Bailey. An earlier report indicated that the team was undecided as to whether it would offer arbitration to the former closer, who had season-ending shoulder surgery in July.

The Red Sox are interested in retaining Bailey as possible insurance for closer Koji Uehara, who inherited the role from Bailey.


Andrew Bailey could be non-tendered


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/1/2013) Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey told the Providence Journal that he has not been in contact with general manager Ben Cherington since the end of the season, and that he has not received assurances that he will be offered arbitration. Bailey added, "Hopefully something will get worked out. If they take me through arbitration or not, I love the city, love the area, love the guys, and it'd be great to get the opportunity to play there again."

Under arbitration, the Journal reports that Bailey would likely be awarded a deal worth more than $4 million.

Bailey is recovering from shoulder surgery and is not expected to return until midseason. He is slated to embark upon his throwing program in January.


Red Sox make flurry of roster moves


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2013) The Boston Red Sox made a series of official roster moves on Monday as they removed several players from the 60-day disabled list. 

Relief pitcher Andrew Bailey, who had both his labrum and shoulder capsule repaired in July, comes off the DL. He's expected to be sidelined a minimum of 12 months while recovering from the procedure. 

Outfielder Ryan Kalish missed last season due to a shoulder injury and underwent cervical fusion surgery on his back in August. He could be playing with a different team next season. 

In other moves, the Red Sox sent infielder Brandon Snyder and outfielder Quintin Berry outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey, who is out for the year after undergoing shoulder surgery in July, joined the team Tuesday at Fenway Park, WEEI.com reports. 

"It’ll be good to be around the game again, be around the guys and just get me out of the house," Bailey said.

All is well with Bailey five weeks into his rehab. He's slimmed down and is looking to rejoin the Red Sox by the middle of July next year.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

In 30 games with Boston this year, Bailey converted eight of his 13 save opportunities with a 3.77 ERA.

Sidelined reliever backs Andrew Bailey for closer's role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2013) There appears to be strong indications out of Boston that displaced closer Andrew Bailey will return to the closer's role at some point. Red Sox reliever Joel Hanrahan, who held the closer's role before having season-ending elbow surgery, shared the same belief during an interview with MLB Network Radio Tuesday.

"I look for him to take over [the closer] role again," Hanrahan said. "He's got the stuff to do it. He's got the experience."


Red Sox looking for 'huge lift' from Andrew Bailey


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2013) Red Sox reliever Koji Uehara suffered his first blown save in four appearances Sunday against the Blue Jays since taking over the closer's role from the struggling Andrew Bailey. While Uehara has done well since taking over the closer's role, he admitted Sunday he was feeling tired after his fourth appearance in five days, which led manager John Farrell to leave the door open for Bailey to re-emerge as closer.

"That’s why Andrew Bailey, getting him back on track, is one of our main goals right now," Farrell said, per the Boston Herald. "It would give our bullpen a huge lift and this team a huge lift."


'No script' for demoted closer Andrew Bailey


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2013) Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday there's "no script" for using demoted closer Andrew Bailey, according to the Providence Journal. Bailey will be treated as a middle reliever and be used in any situation.

Andrew Bailey searching for early season form


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2013) It's been a rough go lately for Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey. Not only has he lost the closer's role to Koji Uehara, but he also has a 16.62 ERA and .476 opponents' batting average in his last six appearances.

Despite his recent struggles, Bailey remains confident he will turn his season around.

"I feel fine," Bailey said, per the Boston Herald. "Ball is coming out good. It’s just executing pitches. Got to throw strikes in this game. I know that the guy that was here in April and early in May isn’t gone. It doesn’t happen like that. I have to go back to what I was doing then."


Don't drop Andrew Bailey just yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/21/2013) Yes, the Red Sox are giving Andrew Bailey a break from closing -- or as manager John Farrell puts it, "backing him out of [the role] to get him some work to get on track a little more" -- which for the time being, makes him practically worthless in Fantasy.

But nobody is suggesting the change is permanent. In fact, Farrell's comments seem to indicate otherwise. Ideally, the Red Sox would like to be able to move Bailey back into the role once he regains the couple miles per hour he lost to a biceps strain and starts locating his pitches better. If you drop him and he reclaims the role within a week or two, you'll have to compete for his services all over again.

Instead, why not stash him and see how the situation outfolds? If over the next couple weeks, he continues to flounder in middle relief and Koji Uehara shows no signs of letting up in ninth-inning duty, maybe you drop him then. A couple weeks' time is surely worth a handful of FAAB dollars.


Andrew Bailey loses closer role after another blown save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2013) Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey coughed up another lead and lost his role as the team's closer following Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers, according to manager John Farrell.

Bailey entered in the ninth with a slim, one-run advantage. He issued a walk to Victor Martinez before surrendering a walkoff, two-run home run to Jhonny Peralta to end the game. Bailey was charged with his first loss and fourth blown save of the season. He has allowed seven runs (four homers) over his last four innings pitched.

Andrew Bailey to remain closer 'for the time being'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2013) During his weekly radio appearance on WEEI, Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday reliever Andrew Bailey will remain the closer "for the time being." Bailey has been struggling lately, recording two blown saves and an 11.25 ERA in his last four appearances. 

"Andrew Bailey is our closer, and yet we fully recognize that we have some work to do with him," Farrell said. "Right now, what has plagued him is that fastball has been up to his arm side, where left-handers have hurt him with the long ball. So getting him down in the strike zone consistently. And I think more than anything is just getting the breaking ball over in either the first pitch or fastball counts. But for the time being, he is definitely our closer."


'Jumpy' Andrew Bailey struggling with fastball command


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2013) Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey was hit with his second blown save in his last four appearances Tuesday against the Rays. Bailey also has an 11.25 ERA and .412 opponents' batting average in his last four outings (four innings).

On Wednesday, Red Sox manager John Farrell tried to explain during an interview with MLB Network Radio why Bailey has been struggling.

"When he's been jumpy, moving away from rubber too quick, that's when fastball command goes away," Farrell said.


Andrew Bailey has 'work to do'


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey remains in the ninth-inning role after blowing his latest save but earning the win Tuesday against the Rays in the nightcap of a doubleheader, the Providence Journal reports.

Manager John Farrell said after the game that Bailey remains the team's closer for now, "but there's work to do."

Bailey blew his third save Tuesday and has given up five runs over his last four appearances.


Andrew Bailey blows save, pulls win


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey was unsuccessful in doing his job Tuesday night in the second game of a doubleheader against the Rays. Bailey blew his third save of the season as he couldn't protect a 1-0 lead.

He gave up a solo homer to Kelly Johnson that tied the score at one before getting three outs. He threw 18 pitches as the game went into the bottom of the ninth.

Boston's Jonny Gomes hit a two-run walk-off homer for the Red Sox and Bailey came away the winning pitcher. He improved his record to 3-0 with a 3.22 ERA.

Bailey has given up five earned runs over his last four appearances. He's surrendered three homers and walked four over that stretch with two saves and two blown. He has eight saves in 11 chances.
